The Stirling Broadcast LS3/6 speakers are amazingly good speakers. I predict that they will become a classic in the BBC-style chain following the BC-1 and the SP1/2. When things open up, please make a trip to Jeff Stake HiFi to listen to these wonderful speakers. Both cherry and walnut veneers are available. The speakers for sale are new with a full warranty. (The cherry speakers pictured above are demos and not the new speakers for sale. The pictures also include an example of the walnut version.)
Derek Hughes has done a wonderful job of updating this classic BBC design, taking advantage of better drive units than were available in the past. They are an easy load for your amplifier to drive, with an impedance that stays above 6.8 ohms. The high impedance of these speakers reduces distortion in the amplifier, so it performs better, more accurately, than it would perform driving other speakers. They sound beautiful. They look like speakers and sound like music.
Doug Stirling has done a wonderful job of overseeing the excellent construction of these speakers. You can be proud of how well they are made as well as how good they sound.
If you do not like them, you can return them within 30 days. If you return them in perfect condition with all packing materials, you will have a choice of a refund minus paypal fees and minus $300 to cover my shipping costs, or an exchange for another product of similar value. (My other product lines are Gradient, Harbeth, Lyngdorf, and Parasound.) If the replacement product has a lower price, I will refund the difference. If you want to avoid paypal fees, message me on this site to arrange for a different method of payment.

Before he died far too young, a fabulous cellist said of the Stirling Broadcast LS3/6 speakers he heard here, "They are the only ones where I can recognize my own playing."
